Thanks, We’ll Take It From Here
offers a visual tale of modern-day revolutionaries protesting the banksters of corporate America, the ultra-rich, and the politicians who enable them.
American Capitalists have constructed the largest, most expensive, most sophisticated propaganda machine in world history.
This minuscule hive of oligarchs (read: predominantly white men) own TV networks, newspapers, movie studios and advertisers.
The results: most Americans hate socialism without even knowing what it is and thus the plutocracy have convinced 100s of millions of working people to not trust or value themselves.
All of this in cahoots with the state, which shows how shameful the political system is by pampering the very wealthy while millions of people are treated like discarded refuse. Income inequality and the systems creating the disparities are inherently violent.
This country was founded and created and prospered with the use of systemic violence. Black communities and other communities of color are subjected to wholesale oppression from the government to this day, constantly under the threat of police violence and systemic racism.
The Democratic Party mostly sucks, but the Republicans have shown us that they are the fucking Lords of Darkness with no signs of abandoning their white supremacism and fascist cruelty – and they don’t even have majority rule. We need hundreds of AOCs, Bernies, Stacy Abrams in high office before it’s too late.
And with the added threat of continuing climate disasters, strains on our systems will only increase.
The great Republican bamboozle must stop now. And if it doesn’t, and with no other choice, we, the people may get desperate enough to rise up with more than just pitchforks.
